economy and jobs, that we're not talking about obama's record for debt and deficits, health care, energy, any day we're talking about something else, that's good for obama, and so i will be surprised if he doesn't make a little bit of a comeback here. he's had a prett pretty solid mt for a month. there wasn't anything happen to stop the movement by romney. what may stop it is this storm and not so much that the president will do a great job, although i don't have any doubt that he will. mostly what happens right after a terrible storm is we know where i come from, it's the local first responders. it's the firemen, the policeman, the highway patrolmen, the national guardsmen, the mayors, the governors, but the federal government has a role to play, a bigger role down the road, but the biggest thing is changing the subject is great for obama. he's been trying to change the subject all year. >> greta: let's talk about timing. if he changes the subject, for instance, monday night, if everyone is done early voting, doesn't matter if he changes the subject. we're a week out and the subject is

level and then, folks, write it down. here are a couple of ways to look at the obama job record for the republicans, democrats, and economists. let's look at the full screen we have. what you find is you've created or he's created under his presidency 580,000 jobs created beginning in february '09 through october 2012. now democrats might take out the first three months something republicans are unlikely to do when there was a huge number of jobs lost before any of us took effect. plus 2.1 million. economistses in the last two numbers that minus 3.2 million shows what happened from the beginning of the obama presidency through the trough, minus 3.2 million and then from there plus 4.3 million jobs. so take it any way you like. you can create jobs, create enough jobs, not the enough jobs. that's for you guys to figure out. there's the baseline, though. a modest uptick in the economy before sandy but thursday when jobless claims we're likely to see the first effects of sandy show up in the data. carl? >> thank you so much, steve. what could this mean as we head into the election? he h

romney and ryan's real problem. >> the president would spend $90 billion on so-called green energy jobs. >> president obama is picking winners and losers based on connections, based on fads like solyndra. >> we all like wind and solar but you can't drive a car with a windmill on it. >> the past prosperity is not through solar shingles and high speed train. and by the way, i like coal. >> jon: i like it a lot! i give it to my grandkids every christmas! (laughter) so they're picking winners and losers. so here is what it is, the republicans appear to have a principlesed stance that government shouldn't pick winners and losers when the government is run by democrats. but when it's run by them, pick away!

, there are some unusually high percentages of pennsylvania voters approving of obama's job performance, which is unusual. democrats could feel probably a little reassurance. it's kind of difficult to imagine a president with with that high of approval in this kind of environment the getting thrown out, getting rejected. host: thomas fitzgerald, who covers politics for "the philadelphia inquirer." thank you for being with us. but it back to your phone calls. mike from pennsylvania, democratic line. good morning. caller: the morning, steve and terry. with controversy about the voter id lot to suppress turnout, do you think that this will in any way suppress turnout? if so, will it be enough to affect the margins in any way? thanks. guest: last march, the legislature passed a law that required pennsylvania voters to show up with one of six approved photo id's. if you did not have one, they would provide you with one but you have to go through certain procedures to get one. more recently, in the last three weeks, a judge in our states simply set aside that particular provision of law so th

sounds like president obama is creating a lot of jobs for wal-mart readers. wages went down, hours worked went down. i don't know what talking points you're working from. gerri: i think there is widespread frustration with how the economy is growing. why aren't we getting a more robust expansion especially when it comes to jobs? i heard if we continue to add jobs month by month like we did this month it would take us ne to 10 years to get back to full employment. >> i would n believe all of those numbers. what you're seeing right now is job growth three times what it was at this point in the 2001 recovery. what you're seeing right now is 32 straight months of job growth. growth model a financial crisis. this is not an ordinary recession. this is the worst crisis and we are doing extremely well. gerri: i feel confident in the numbers i presented. i think karen is making the point we have had gdp in positive territory for a while. it is not like it is negative, so why are you complaining? >> we are barely above stall speed. weaker than it was last year. weakewe could than a year befo
